Science in the EU
In the wake of the EU referendum, the Biochemical Society is keen to ensure that the UK molecular bioscience community maintains its high international profile and that our open approach to trans-national collaborative opportunities remains clear.
We aim to address issues of relevance to the industrial bioscience community in the UK. A current particular area of focus for us is the changing drug discovery landscape, which we are looking at via our membership of the Drug Discovery Pathways Group.
The Biochemical Society is committed to ensuring equal opportunities in the molecular biosciences. We believe that a lack of diversity across the scientific community represents a loss of potential talent to the UK.
Politicians, government departments and international organisations play a key role in the science sector. We work to ensure key policymakers are aware of the views and concerns of our membership.
